The production of LifeLadder begins in a few weeks. According to Port Safety, besides the Port of Horsens, the Port of Aarhus and Svendborg municipality are also engaged in the testing and market development programme, supported by the Market Development Fund. In addition to the three Danish ports, the Port of Helsingborg in Sweden and Mourik, a Dutch lock servicing company, are also taking part in the programme.

“It is a rather simple product with a straightforward construction, but the LifeLadder lights up the dark, to put it plainly," said Claus Holm Christensen, Port Director in Port of Horsens, who has signed an agreement with Port Safety for the delivery of four new rescue ladders.

The rescue ladders will be mounted in the industrial area of Port of Horsens. If LifeLadder meets the expectations, the port will consider investing in additional ladders.

"I heard about the new Danish rescue ladder for the first time at a conference in Barcelona during the summer and immediately thought that it sounded exciting," added Christensen. "We would like to help develop things and improve safety for the port’s employees, seamen working aboard the ships at dock and the town’s residents. As we were also due to replace several of the old rescue ladders, it made sense to choose LifeLadder."
